More than 250 residents in Catani, Bayles and surrounds will soon be able to access superfast-broadband as the National Broadband Network (NBN) rolls out across the region.
I am pleased that fixed wireless broadband construction has started in these townships.
Residents should be able to connect broadband and phone services through the NBN within 12 months.
Many residents have come to me to express their frustration over inadequate access to broadband.
In this era, where we rely on the internet for everything from paying bills to completing further study, having fast and reliable internet is imperative.
The rollout is happening faster than ever since the Coalition Government took office and trials have started to test other technologies which will dramatically lower the cost and time it will take to deliver fast broadband to all Australians.
Since the election, the nationwide number of active broadband connections on the NBN has more than doubled.
The Government’s changes to the NBN rollout will save $32 billion will see upgrades delivered four years sooner than under Labor and avoid Internet retail bills increasing by up to $43 a month.
Suburbs and towns with the worst broadband service will get priority under NBN Co’s new rollout strategy.
